7th Bead Soup Blog Party - Reveal

Welcome to the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party, third reveal!
For the seventh time, Lori Anderson decided to organize a blogging party, where participants from all over the world exchange their sets of beads. This time, the play was attended by 541 people!
My partner was Colleen Vinthagen from Sweden. Here's what she sent me: 
topaz beads, lepidolite rondelle, pearls, agate, pyrite, carnelian ovals, ceramic daisies and clasp she made.
I sent her the following set of beads:
felted pebbles, ceramic blocks and button, crocheted ovals, czech glass...
If you're wondering what Colleen made with them, please take a look at her blog.
I liked a lot beads I recived from Colleen, but I wondered a long time what to do with them. I had a void in my head, ideas didn't want to come. I wanted the best use of beauties she sent me. And suddenly it snap:) This is the result:
First design - a bracelet with beautiful, big ceramic daisie as a main part. 
 
I fastened flower by chain with seed beads, then added yellow topaz rounds, lepidolite rondelles and blue fire agate rondelles all from Colleen. I separated them with miyuki seed beads. As closure - a wire clasp Colleen made.

Then I made earings with the same daisies and topaz rounds. I just added ceramic discs, copper chain and seed beads from my own stash.

And finally I made another bracelet.
I used blue fire agate rondelle, lovely yellow carnelian faceted ovals and antique bronze rondelle pearls Collen sent me. From my own collection I have chosen palm wood beads, orange coral, copper chain and ceramic heart as a pendant.
I am very pleased with the final results. I really like colour scheme especially in the last bracelet.

Lori, thank you for organizing the great party! Again!;)
And Colleen, it was a pleasure to be your BSBP partner! Ha det sa bra!

If you want to get to know the rest of the participants, HERE'S a list.
